From the Garden

The garden is becoming happier. Our 90+ degree days are still happening, but becoming fewer, and the plants have been thankful. The squash plants are making another round of fruits, which should be able to mature as long as our September doesn't turn cold and wet. Our grapevine is bursting with fruit and our tomatoes seem to have overcome their problem with blossom end rot. All in all, things are good.

How is your garden?
Pin It Now!


  1. Gorgeous photos of your bountiful garden. Have a great weekend. xo

  2. you must have a really nice camera! or maybe it's the photographer :) anyway, the grapes look amazing. we just ripped out some plants today and prepared the beds (i mean one bed lol) for a fall garden. However, I let the kids have control and they pretty much just threw some carrot, beet, and radish seeds everywhere and covered them up. They also planted some pinto beans they had sprouted as a science experiment. I guess we will just wait and see what happens....
